I am considering moving to PlusNet Premier service and would like to find out a few things first.
First, I have heard of the file shaping and that it would be about 5% which would not bother me at all on P2P (even if some are saying it is much more than that, I am not that concerned with P2P - more with newsgroups)
Right, I need to know if newsgroups are throttled like this and are counted in with P2P. I am not talking about PlusNet's own newsgroups but about a Premium paid for newsgroup (newshosting). I could tolerate issues with P2P such as some people are saying 80% drop and so on but could not tolerate this on newsgroups.
Also, am I correct that on 2 meg max d/l is around 240k. So if the throttle was working correctly and i was throttled at the max 10%.... i would still get 216k which i'd be perfectly happy with. I just couldn't cope with 100k or something lol!
